RELYING ON THE WORD OF GOD.

SOUL-LIFT DAILY DEVOTIONAL WITH DR D.M. TIKILI.

DATE: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13 2021.

TOPIC: RELYING ON THE WORD OF GOD.

DEVOTIONAL READING:
Ezra 5

KEY VERSE: Then the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied unto the Jews that were in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, even unto them. (Ezra 5:1).

BIBLE CHARACTER IN VIEW: ZECHARIAH.

The best way to judge preaching is not by how eloquent or clever words sound, but by whose words they are. Are they GOD’s?
Zechariah (together with Haggai) prophesied during the period of time when the Jews of Jerusalem were trying to rebuild their city.

Catcalls from the neighbors had slowed the people down, so Zechariah’s message was clear and forceful: Keep building! It’s what GOD wants! You can do it! Too determined to let a little opposition spoil the Jews’ resolve to finish what GOD had called them to do, Zechariah encouraged and helped the people. It made a big difference, too. The people listened to the words and were stirred to take action.

Common sense and experience-based wisdom have their place, but there is no substitute for the Word of GOD. Put another way, sometimes we are discouraged unnecessarily. We hear bad news, or face a setback, or think that all is lost, and we want to give up. We want to quit. We feel hopeless.

A good friend offers a reminder: GOD is still alive. His ways are going to prevail. Nothing is impossible with GOD. Don’t let your friends lose sight of the hope we have in our eternal, all-powerful, loving GOD.

THOUGHT FOR THE Day: Encourage And Help The Discouraged.

Further Study: Ezra 6

PROPHETIC DECLARATION:

  1. O LORD, thank you for your word.
  2. By the power in the word of God, I triumph in all my trials in Jesus Name.
  3. Every power of discouragement in my life, die, in the Name of Jesus.
  4. My soul, receive the courage of the Lord in Jesus Name.

Be Lifted!
